Yamaha AN1X Sounds - Part 2

Published on Nov 24, 2019 ProckGnosis

Part 1 posted here.

"This is part 2 of a lengthy listen to a great sounding and very capable virtual analog (VA) synth from Yamaha released in 1997. Jump to 1:35 to skip the intro. This is a continuation of a run through of the AN1x presets.

As I asked in the "AN1x Sounds - Part 1" video, if Yamaha made a VA this good 20+ years ago, why haven't they updated this and made an even cooler and better synth with the more capable and cheaper tech that's available now?

--AN1X Specs--
Polyphony - 10 notes
Oscillators - 2 osc: saw, variable width pulse, FM
Effects - Reverb, delay, 3-band EQ, chorus, flanger, phaser, enhancer, compressor, distortion, overdrive, amp simulator.
Filter - Resonant 12/18/24dB/oct low/band/hi pass filter + 1 more hi pass
Arpeg/Seq - Arpeg: 1 mon/poly, up, down, up/down, random; MIDI-capable. Seq: 16 steps, 1 track
Keyboard - 61 keys (with velocity and aftertouch)
Memory - 128 patches
Control - MIDI (2 parts)
Date Produced - 1997" Sale - 15% Off Essential Modules Ends Tonight

You can find them here.

Their next sale kicks off tomorrow. See below for dates and items.

Update: moved this post up so those interested do not miss it before it's too late.

Solina String Ensemble Early Series Comparison

Published on Nov 24, 2019 Italian Vintage Stuff!

"Strictly for nerds: Sorry for my poor keyboard skills, but this was not an intent to make a musical video, it's a comparison of two early series Solina String Ensemble keyboards.
To show that they differ ever so slightly in sound, and how different they sound compared to the later versions.
These are up for sale on"

LuLaAh - Flute, Morphagene, Mimeophon, VCV Rack, O Coast, Freak, Disting

Premiere in progress. Started 2 minutes ago Omri Cohen

"Recording the Flute into the Morphagene is fun :) There are some patch notes below.

If you like what I do and want to support my work, consider joining my crew on Patreon -

Here it is on Spotify, iTunes, and more -
You can get the WAV file for this recording and also the individual stems on my Patreon page -
And also the VCV Rack patch file -

Patch notes :
- I use the Mimophon as a voice with its feedback all the way up, and I'm playing it with the Keystep. It's then going through the Disting in stereo delay mode with a nice long feedback.
- I switch the v/oct cable of the Keystep from the Mimeophon to the O Coast and record it into a looper in VCV Rack.
- I then switch the cable again to a self-oscillating filter on the Freak module from Vult, and record it into another looper in VCV Rack.
- I record the flute directly into the Morphagene with the Zoom H6 recorder.
- In VCV Rack I have a sequence going with the Seasons sequencer, sequencing both the Woldemar oscillator and an FM-OP which is going through Clouds.
- Also in VCV Rack, I play the Cozmic oscillator with the Keystep through Midi.
By the way, Lulaah in Hebrew means a loop..."

Modal Electronics 008 Pad tweaking

Published on Nov 24, 2019 synthlegends

"Demo of the Modal 008 played through the GFI Clockwork V3 Delay Pedal. No additional FX or masterin used. I played a lush pad with different filter types, somoe LP Filter, 4 db, 3, db, 2, db, 1 db and notch. Also I used once the drive parameter and once a bit filter FM. Also the waveforms changed and the mixing of the oscilators. I modulated the pad with 2 LFO, modulated the filter cutoff and the PMW."

Octave Plateau Voyetra 8 SN NJ6813

via this auction

"This one is perfectly working, in good condition - the top metal has a bit rack rash but this doesn't prevent the synth from producing some of the most excellent synth sounds you could possibly hear - even today in our synth-flooded world, this is a stand-out piece. In case you fancy to upgrade it to a V8 (as i did with my other V8), i can get you in touch with a tech who just made clones of the V8 Rev2 Logic board. But even without being a rev2, this is heaps of synth fun and mesmerising, in my opinion better than the big Moogs or Oberheim from that era. And these were pretty great already..."

Except I love you. I say that with every tweak of those knobs.
